Bernie Sanders will introduce a bill backed by Rep. Ilhan Omar to forgive student loan debt in the upwards of $1.6 Trillion, as they believe this to be an economic issue that is financially crippling a generation.
So if you lived frugally through college, studied and worked your ass off to pay your student loans, now be prepared to pay with your taxes for freeloaders. This is called wealth redistribution, AKA theft.
Vote for me and you get free stuff!
why would the taxpayer pay off someone's debt to a private sector?
so i worked full time through college and turned down many internships, which hurt my career. to pay for school as i went through it....do i get a repayment? or are breaks only for the lazy.
You can buy a lot of votes for 1.6T...
Great joke get the American tax payer to pay for a postmodernist neo Marxist drenched “education experience “ that has taught its victims to want the destruction of the system that created the wealth that’s been creamed of in taxes to pay for the subversion... omg it’s just hilarious
Trump's spent a term pushing book balancing and all the dem candidates want to do is spend spend spend. Somehow I don't think this is going to go well for them.
There are those who tried to choose a career path wisely, worked hard, worked a job to reduce the amount they needed to borrow & have still found it hard to find employment after college, there are those who did everything right & are doing well.
There are also those who decided to study the most worthless, liberal arts & humanities degrees like gender studies, race studies, interpretive lesbian dance theory etc, yes that last one might be a little ridiculous but it more than makes my point. Who deserves to have their loans forgiven if this is what the extremists in the Democrat party want to do?
Those who worked hard but still struggle to find work in fields that are facing a glut of the employable talent pool? Those who’re doing well enough to pay back what they owe or the idiots like the morons at Oberlin who chose to study far leftist stupidity at the feet of extremist activists masquerading as teachers, who chose to be racists & who chose to behave so badly that Oberlin is on the hook for $22m in punitive damages to a bakery the College & the extremist activists it had trained, goaded & then unleashed had harassed & persecuted?
I’m not saying there aren’t problems or predatory practices involved but the answer isn’t to just wipe everyone’s debt regardless of situation or circumstance. Many don’t deserve such a gift. It doesn’t matter how it’s payed for, yes Wall Street hasn’t paid its dues even now for its role in the Sub Prime crisis but many don’t deserve to enjoy having their loans wiped. They chose stupidity time & time & time again & refused to listen to better advice. Any fix to what is really at the root of any problem that exists will only happen with bipartisan cooperation, not mass exoneration for many who more than deserve to be in the dire financial straits in which they now find themselves.
Great idea. bail out one generation by crippling another generation with national debt. If this man becomes president I am moving to Poland.
Pochahants gets 350K a year to teach 1 class 1 day a week
So, who's going to pay for this? I'm not footing the bill for kids who don't want to pay back the loans they knowingly took out.
"Listen, if I want to major in gender studies, social justice, and activism, I shouldn't have to pay because education should be free for all peoplekind" - signed any leftwing cultist.
"Oh, and praise be to the enlightenment of aoc, bernie, and ilhan; long may they tend the flames that we will use to burn the patriarchy and white capitalist oppression systems and free the marginalised." - again, any cultist when they realize they don't get the full day's pay without adding more buzzwords.
Goddamn, the West is in peril if these idiots ever get to the levers of power.
Ah yes, tax investors to pay the debt of gender studies majors... Very "smart".
Why exonerate the loans completely? That will immediately push people away. Why not just allow people who can't pay those loans to be able to declare bankruptc? Just like any other loan that you get in over your head on?
Dont go to a private out of state uni for a liberal arts degree. simple.
So they're willing to use $1.6 Trillion to bail people out of something they understood they had to pay back down the line when they signed but they couldn't give a comparatively meager $5 billion to Trump for the wall? Morons.
it's going to be real funny then this commie dies of old age getting nothing done
Seeing how the student loans in the United States has climbed to over a trillion dollars... this seems like a good idea. It will give a whole generation a second chance.
I clicked real clear politics and it had a link to Huffington Post article. It should be updated to "left"
I didn't go to college because I'm not a fucking retard, so I'm definitely not paying for your education. If a democrap wins 2020, I'm genuinely gonna go underground and stop paying taxes. Not paying reparations, not paying for your schooling.
